My approach is accepting, caring, confidential and non-judgmental, as well as practical and grounded. I help people to get clarity about their problems, and to connect with their own inner wisdom, creativity, self awareness, and healing. This allows for a natural emergence of positive choices, good solutions, and actions that are in alignment with their true selves and deepest desires. I work with individuals, couples, teens and families on improving communication, resolving conflicts, and developing more trust and acceptance, which helps to improve closeness and positive feelings in relationships.

Struggling with addiction and feel rehab isn’t an option? Leaving your family, job, school and responsibilities for an extended period of time is not always needed to get yourself healthy and on track. If you or a loved one are struggling with addiction, I know the challenges of this lifestyle. Being caught in the cycle of addiction is hard--feelings of fear, failure, guilt, and shame. You may have tried stopping on your own, only to find yourself engaging in the same unhelpful behavior. Breaking this cycle alone is tough! Counseling may be more effective for you than rehab. I specialize in moderation & abstinence based approaches.

I believe that every individual is unique, therefore, no single type of therapy will be effective for everyone. That is why I evaluate each person's specific needs and personality before selecting the most appropriate form of treatment. This approach is called Prescriptive Eclectic Therapy and it draws on theories and techniques from Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Self Psychology, Gestalt Therapy, Hypnotherapy and many others. This therapy can be brief or long-term, depending on your specific needs and goals. However, in many cases, therapy can be effective in just a few months.

How we handle that growth and change will determine how successful we are in navigating relationships, careers, personal development, and obstacles that we come across in our daily lives. Oftentimes it is difficult to process everything going on in life when you're at the center of it, even when things are going well!
